I am sure that Derek
will rise to the new challenge.
Congratulations are in order for Mr.Derek Alleyne who is now the Director of the UDC . I am sure that he will do an excellent job because of his past experiences . He can also be assured that there are past and present Board members who will be willing to assist him .
I hope Mr.Alleyne, as the Deputy General Secretary of the NUPW
on sabbatical, will do something about the planned retrenchment of a large percentage of the UDC
staff, of whom a majority are members of the same NUPW

I have known and loved and respected Derek Alleyne
for many years.
I am still trying to find out the rationale behind this move, but I see it as a bad play.
I hope the strong and decent Mr Alleyne I know will not fall victim to stupidness and I hope there will be no fall out between him and party over sinister things.
I feel so uncomfortable about this as though he
is a relative.
